Remember I said that I went a little crazy with the online shopping while I was on vacation? Well, most of the packages have now arrived. . . Still waiting for two cones (yes, the big big cones) of Aurifil thread. . . Actually, my shopping spree wasn't as bad as I thought. . . yup, might be justifying just a bit there. :) I had decided a couple of months ago that I really need to sew my stash and stop adding to it. To be honest, stash makes me kind of nervous. I love all of those colors and fabrics sitting there all pretty just waiting to be cut up into a quilt. But then I start thinking, am I ever going to use all of this?? My stash is pretty small compared to others I have seen around blogland (come back the end of next week, I'm going to be sharing my sewing space and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about). I'm more apt to buy fabric to suit the quilt that is striking my fancy at the moment. Which means I don't always look to my stash first. . . And sometimes a girl just needs new fabric!
OK, enough of my angst, here's what I bought and what my plans (if I have a plan lol) are for it:
Amy Butler True Colors.
|It's early. No natural light. . . but you get the idea :)|
Plaster of Paris.
|No such thing as enough blenders right? Right??? ;)|
Handcrafted by Alison Glass
|I'm thinking something with flying geese. . . But I'm not ready to commit!|
Some of you will recognize all of these bundles as recent Massdrop offerings. . . yeah. I also got the Olfa blade replacements, the Simmons sewing gauge and the Aurifil cones. . . That is what you call absolutely no restraint. . .
See! that wasn't so bad! ;) Linking up with the fabulous Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash. Head over and be tempted ;) Also linking up with Patchwork Times for DWM.
Until next time, keep on quilting! And buying fabric ;)
